As Corporate Finance Officer Americas and a member of the finance executive committee for Mars, Inc., Mr. de Talhouet, among other things, successfully led a multiple year program to transform the global Finance function for the company, oversaw governance and compliance in the region, and was Dean of Mars University for Finance. The five years prior he served as CFO Europe for Mars Global Chocolate. Before joining Mars, Inc., Mr. de Talhouet spent more than a decade in senior finance positions for Alcatel-Lucent, gaining deep financial expertise and co-piloting skills with global corporations both in Europe and the Americas. He started his career at Societe Generale bank where he spent four years.

He holds Bachelor Degrees in Economics and International Management as well as a Master's Degree in Finance, Accounting and Corporate Law.

"I am very excited to welcome Patrice as Coty's new CFO.  Patrice has a deep, well rounded profile and a proven, successful track record in leading large financial operations with premier multinational corporations," said Michele Scannavini, CEO, Coty Inc. "He will be a strong addition to our Executive Team."

Mr. Pedreiro joined Coty during the 2009 global financial crisis and implemented a strategy that brought solid contributions to Coty's earnings improvement and margin expansion. Mr. Pedreiro also strengthened governance and compliance, including the implementation of SOX, all of which was instrumental in guiding Coty to the public markets in June 2013.

"Along with Coty's Executive Team, I would like to acknowledge Sergio's many talents and thank him for his contributions to our profitable growth achieved over the past five years. We very much appreciated his business acumen along with his unique interpersonal skills. He will be missed and we wish him all the best for the future," continued Scannavini.
